COZY CASA NEAR AKUMAL ~ WALK TO SECLUDED BEACH ~ AFFORDABLE ADVENTURE!

Akumal House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Relax in the shade of the front porch overlooking the lush jungle, or explore the diverse amusements of the Riviera Maya. Casa Caralinde offers the best of both worlds! Situated on the quiet end of a quaint, colorful neighborhood, this casa is right near the beach path and two neighborhood cenotes. This cozy retreat has been recently renovated with colorful Mexican touches and lovingly handcrafted furniture. It offers a fully equipped kitchen, a warm, inviting living and dining area, two comfortable bedrooms, and a tiled bathroom. If the tropical breezes aren’t blowing, A/C and ceiling fans keep the casa cool. Savor the tropical setting! Kick back on the covered front patio, swing in the hammock, or pack up the beach chairs and cooler and head to the beach. This private home is located in Chan Chemuyil - just five minutes from Akumal, ten minutes from Tulum, and within walking distance to Xcacel beach – one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. Note: Walking to Xcacel beach requires crossing a highway(see photos) with a wide median in the center.

Local Experience, With All The Comforts Of Home: Casa Caralinde is a clean, comfortable, “home away from home” in a magical setting. During your stay, you’re sure to meet friendly homeowners and vacationers in the quaint, colorful community of Chan Chemuyil who share your enthusiasm for 'off the beaten path' travel and adventure.

Looking For Adventure?: Within a short drive of Casa Caralinde you’ll find extraordinary snorkeling and diving, magnificent ancient ruins, thrilling eco/theme/water parks, world class golf, lively night clubs, and so much more!

Looking For A Little Local Flavor?: The enchanting Mayan pueblo of Chemuyil is just down the road from Chan Chemuyil (“little Chemuyil” in Mayan). A stroll through the pueblo is a feast for the eyes. Sample the local cuisine at authentic, inexpensive eateries. Stop at the fruit stand for some exotic fruit, or delight in a sweet treat from the bakery. Evenings are filled with an air of fiesta and the sound of children’s laughter.

Why Carol Van Dyken chose Akumal

While researching a family trip in early 2008, we came upon these homes for sale in Chemuyil Mexico. We had no intention of purchasing a home in Mexico, but enticed by the beauty of the area, we decided it would be a nice place to spend winters when we retire. We sent a deposit, and drove out to take a look at the neighborhood during our March 2008 trip to Akumal ... we were hooked. The subdivision had been built about six years prior as housing for workers, and had basically sat empty. The homes were pretty sad looking, but we knew they had potential. From our first glimpse of the casa, which was a photo sent via e-mail, we were in love. Chan Chemuyil is a neighborhood in transition. It started out as rows of cookie-cutter cement boxes, but is blossoming into a vibrant community. As owners have added patios, gardens, walls, and a myriad of paint colors each home now parades its uniqueness.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Caralinde was the perfect spot for our family of four. Because it is not in a heavily touristed district, you can feel like you can spread out a bit with your family, enjoy some peace, and not have the noisiness or craziness of other locales. While the house itself is really great, comfortable, and had everything we needed to cook some very nice meals, the real charm is what Casa Caralinda is close to. The nearby town of Chemuyil is a very cool town that is rare in the area in that it is not at all overrun with foreigners. It can be a bit tricky to navigate without speaking Spanish, but even with a smidgen of Spanish it would be easy to accomplish whatever you needed to. The nearby town of akumal has very nice snorkeling, and the waters are calm enough that my 5 year-old son and I could snorkel together and check out the sea turtles. We highly recommend this place.

As they say in Mexico, Perfecto!

We're not into resorts or the somewhat nutty and sleazy Cancun scene, this is the real Mexico. We rented a car and like to get out everyday. This was a perfect home base. Nice house, great community. Chemuyil is a lovely little Mexican town, with some good restaurants and a little store. Very handy. The beach is fabulous, clean and quiet, easily the nicest beach we've been to in Mexico. The nearby town of Akumal is great, with a great snorkeling beach, we saw lots of turtles, rays, barracuda, pufferfish, cuttlefish, and many others. Farther down the beach road to the end is another excellent snorkel site, it was like an aquarium. 5 min. towards Tulum is Dos Ojos cenotes. Take the snorkel gear, it's mind blowing. We did a day trip to Vallalidad. Great little colonial city, not too touristy, and the Cenote Maya on the way back was incredible. We like to eat dinner out and there was always great places to go between Akumal, Chemuyil and Tulum. In the morning I liked to get up early and have coffee on the front patio and watch the birds in the jungle. We'll definitely be back.

The house was wonderful for 4 people and so well equipped. Everything from a well stocked kitchen to snorkeling gear for 4. The orientation DVD and notebook were very helpful. A very detailed map of the area would be helpful.

Owner's Response: Lyell, So glad you enjoyed our casa. Mapchick's Can-Do maps are the best I've found of the area. It sounds like it's time to order a new one.

Dream House!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot begin to express my fond feelings for Casa Caralinde, it was a wonderful experience from start to finish! The house is wonderful, comfortable and very clean. The owner was cordial and helpful in every way. The location is perfect. The Pueblo of Chemuyil is charming, with great food (La Palapa, Leo's Pizza and if you're lucky - a grilled flattened chicken from the barbecue man. Walk down the jungle road to the wonderful cenote Xunaan Ha, a splendid beautiful lagoon for a refreshing swim, or walk to your own corner to see an exotic little cenote with a resident turtle and exotic little bird.
From Chan Chemuyil you are close enough to Tulum as well as Akumal to zip down the road in a few minutes(we rented a car, but taxi or collectivo work as well).
The combination of a wonderful house and a fantastic location made our vacation fabulous- THANK YOU!

Casa Caralinde

The Casa was in great condition with everything needed for our extended stay. Everything we could possible want for time at home or the beach was provided. The village nearby is authentic Mexican with lots of families and kids strolling about in the evenings and was a pleasant and safe place to visit. Nice cenotes in the neighborhood. If you want time and privacy away from the big tourist cities this is a great option. The owner and property manager were helpful and efficient so we could spend our time on the beach and relaxing.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
My fiancee and I had a perfect get-away-from it all week at Casa Caralinde. The house was well equipped, clean, and very comfortable. A very short walk to the most breathtaking beach that we often had all to ourselves. We did some great snorkeling there too. Chemuyil is a great town, with delicious local restaurants. We did not rent a car and really did not need one. Chemuyil is a 10 minute walk, the beach is a 5 minute walk, and you can very easily get a collectivo to Tulum, Akumal, or Playa del Carmen - the most we had to wait was about 2 minutes, and its 30 pesos. I really feel like you get the best of the Yucatan without the hassle of the tourist scene. We really, really loved it - can't say enough good things!

We loved Casa Caralinde

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Casa Caralinde for two fabulous weeks with our two young kids and all of had an amazing vacation. The house is in such a fantastic location, far enough from the crowds but a short drive from tons of wonderful areas to explore. And it is an easy drive from the Cancun airport. It is very well located within the neighbourhood as well, quiet and close to two fun cenotes. It was very well stocked making our stay comfortable and easy. It is very attractively decorated and comfortable, right down to a hammock in the back yard. The nearby Xcacel beach was breath taking and often deserted. The snorkeling in Akumal was phenomenal, we saw turtles each time. The town of Chemuyil (within walking distance) had everything we needed if we wanted to cook at home or enjoy a meal at a restaurant. Carol the owner was exceptionally helpful and friendly through out the entire process making our interaction with her a pleasure. I strongly recommend a stay at casa caralinde. It was a wonderful place to go "home" to each night after a fun day out and about.
